opportunity for americans. at a time when our deficit has been cut in half, it enables us to meet our obligations to future generations without a mountain of debt. this adheres to the spending principles members of both houses and both parties agreed to. it also builds on that progress with what we are calling an opportunity, growth, and security initiative, that invests in our economic priorities in a smart way that is fully paid for by making smart spending cuts and closing tax loopholes that right now only benefit the well-off and well-connected. i will give you an example. right now our tax system provides benefits to wealthy individuals who save, even after they have amassed multimillion dollar retirement accounts. by closing that loophole, we can help create jobs and grow the economy, and expand opportunity without adding a dime to the deficit. we know the country that wins the race for new technology will win the race for new jobs, so this budget creates 45 high-tech manufacturing hubs where businesses and universities will partner to turn groundbreaking research into new indus

when our deficit's been cut in half, it allows us to meet our obligations to future generations without leaving them a mountain of debt. >> woodruff: the 2015 deficit would decline, to $560 billion, but republicans today said the red ink, spending hikes and tax increases mean the plan is dead on arrival. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> rather than put together a constructive blueprint the two parties could use as a jumping off point, to get our economy moving and our fiscal house in order, the president has once again opted for the political stunt for a budget that's more about firing up the base in an election year than about solving the nation's biggest and most persistent long-term challenges >> woodruff: congressman paul ryan, the house budget chair, likewise called the obama plan a disappointment. in a statement, he said: >> woodruff: ryan offered an extensive critique yesterday of federal anti-poverty efforts. he's expected to release a republican budget proposal in the coming weeks. >> woodruff: some of the more notable pieces of the president's proposal, and expected
to the flood insurance program which is 24 billion in deficit spending. will this legislation put us further into the deficit? >> no, not at all. in fact, this bill, unlike the senate version which, you know there was a lot of discussion over the senate version, this bill is actually 100% paid for, and, generates about $165 million, according to the cbo, of revenue over five years. so it pays for itself. it is not a tax because it, it pays for itself only for those within the national flood insurance program. so if you're not in a flood zone and you don't have flood insurance, this doesn't affect you. but if you are in the flood insurance program and your primary residence you will pay a user fee to pay in the program of $25 a year. very reasonable. that will pay for the program. gerri: i got it tell you, 200 million over five years? that doesn't do anything over4 billion in debt the program is already n how will we pay that off? >> well it is still better than nothing. had we done nothing, there wouldn't be 165 million toward that debt. that is number one. second thing that number is not co

don't see it happening. and i see a lot of this idea about how we're going to get deficits under control and in plans in time courtesy of tax hikes, but not a lot of spending cuts. >> well, a couple things. first of all, if you look at this budget, it shows the that the deficits are steadily decreasing, year by year. as you know, we've cut them in half over the last four years. and this budget puts the them on a continuing downward trajectory, number one. >> but they are still relying on tax hikes. $1 trillion worth over the next year. and i'm wondering, where are the savings? because the president and republicans, too, there were no fair players on this, they reversed what were going to be minor cost of living juchlgts in the last deal. they scrapped that altogether. writes the will for getting this under control? >> two things. i think if you look in the medicare area, the president's budget identifies some additional efficiencieefficienc that are saved, that are cut, not by harming beneficiaries, but by reducing and continue to reduce some of the overpayments to the private in
they did not vote on the total budget, deficit or surplus if there was one. this is to get them to vote for a budget resolution one place, one time and then run for election on your vote. that stopped. they didn't want to vote for this, and there is no penalty for not voting in it. and then congress doesn't feel they have any obligation to pass one of its own. the process needs to be completely redone. it's not shown that anyone has the testicular fortitude to do it. >> the debt limit is not the place to be having a discussion wherof how you spend your money. this is interesting to me that conservative members of congress are having their cake and eating it, but at the same time not able to prioritize spending the way they would actually like. >> well, let's remember that the conservative members like liberal members can't make decisions unilaterally. i'm sure if the conservatives had the power with the hype see. they probably have trouble getting the support with the reading of the lord's prayer these days. but when it comes to taxes and budget and taxes debt, it's difficult because th
